New to me.

I've tied the Z. with the use of overhands oriented
as yours is, but that's an enlarging of the Z.,
rather than the lopsided compromise you present.
I like it, but I'm not sure if it's especially suited
to any purpose (such as a quick union of thinner
to thicker line).

Thanks,

First shot is NOT Thrun's joint (aka zeppelin bend) ;
thus, it's often referred to as (a) "false zeppelin".
In Thrun's joint (zep.) the SParts rotate the same
direction, not opposite (as in the butterfly knot).

The lower knot is a reversal of Ashley's #1425
(which is a much better knot).
